Dj Diaki is West Africa’s response to singeli. DJ Diaki is a remnant of the Malinese ‘balani show’ which is a musical performance that grew out of traditional weddings.
As a DJ and radio curator Diaki is a master in loop-based mixing. Within his style, he generates intense poly-rhythmic music infused with Coupé Décallé, Soukous, a drum machine and much more. In 2019 he played boiler room at Nyege Nyege and has set his course towards an international tour with first bookings such as CTM festival in Berlin.
